Power in the Workplace: Q & A with Moishe Tyberg, Director of Job Placement, PCS NY

pcsCan you tell us about the current job market?

A: The job market remains competitive and you really need to be aggressive and get out there in order to land an interview at a decent company.

How do you direct job seekers to a fitting job?

A: We try to glean, as much as possible, what the candidates’ interests are and see if we have anything that is applicable. If we don’t have a job that is a “perfect fit” we will see what is similar or where the candidates’ skills are transferrable to a different field.

What skills are employers looking for?

A: Well, every employer’s needs are different but I will say this: the more proficient you are in certain basic office software, i.e.; QuickBooks, excel, Peachtree, Amazon, etc.… the more value you have to a business.

What tips do you have for job seekers?

A: Network and network some more! Don’t be embarrassed to call up friends and family and tell them that you are looking for a job. I find that networking is invaluable.

What skills are important for employees in order to get promoted in a company?

A: Ambition is good but not good enough! People don’t get promoted because they want too; they get promoted by going above and beyond.
